This event has now passed.

The Code of Physiognomy presents new works from Shenyang-born artist Wang Xingwei since his last solo exhibition in 2016. The works present a rather tongue-in-cheek look at life in China, with playful symbology and metaphors that may lead to a few gasps and muffled giggles. From depictions of soldiers to a series on once-influential public figures, Wang's paintings are daring, thought-provoking and something akin to a visual representation of an inside joke.
